Review: Self-Editing for Fiction Writers by Renni Browne, Dave King

Title: Self-Editing for Fiction Wirters
Author: Renni Browne, Dave King

My rating:

This book is a revelation and in some freakish way it did change my (writing) life - for the better.

Before I took this book in my hands I had no idea what kind of (stupid) mistakes I made while writing. I always naturally presumed the most horrendous ones were grammar mistakes and typos, but this book sheds life on mistakes us part-time writers think are minor ones, but seriously compromise the style and story-telling.

A must for everyone who even remotely considers putting their writing out there in the big wide world.
